Hardly playable in Moto G4 plus? - Talexius - 02-23-2017 09:11 PM

Hi.

I was trying to play with the game Jeanne D' Arc in my moto g4 plus. The first problem is the sound stutter a lot (barely playable unless you quit the sound). This was only fixable when I set frameskipping at 4 or 5... but that's hardly enjoyable.

What I can't understand is that when I had a moto g years ago I could play most games without problems (many of them, though not all). So how is that moto g4 plus hasn't a powerful enough cpu to run all games smoothly?

Few things:

1. Phones are very limited by battery and their physical sizes, in last few years they became much prettier, but syntetic benchmarks and marketing numbers aside not that much stronger.
2. You're probably running different android version which can:
- have worse graphics drivers(not like mobiles ever had good ones),
- add's lots of pretty bloat or power saving features which slows stuff down.
3. PPSSPP wasn't emulating some effects in the past which currently add extra weight. You can activate "disable slower effects" in graphics settings to restore old performance(as well as old glitches), but those aren't used in all games, so the stuff listed earlier usually matters more.
